Not sure whether this question is much GMAT-like. In the OA (option B), the parallelism between the two clauses are not maintained. Ideally the structure should be:

While X does...., Y does.....

A more GMAT-like construction could be:
While many citizens feel powerless to influence national policy, some believe that writing to a Congressperson with an opinion is effective.

(A) it is actually effective to write to a Congressperson with an opinion.

(E) the writing of an opinion to a Congressperson may be effective.

Only the above 2 options represent the contrast and reasoning stated in the original sentence, therefore B,C,D are out

However in A and E

E: changes the meaning of the sentence
A: Is correct in meaning and follows grammatical rules

IMO A
